I was woken up by Daniel Tuesday morning at 6:30. “You need to get up and take a look at this”, he said grimly. I went into the living room to see my kitty, Gus, on his back, licking a hole in his gut that was roughly 4-5 inches around. A hole! Gaping. Ugly. You could see fat blobs and muscle. How he got this hole, we have no idea. Emergency surgery was needed and apparently the wound went through his abdominal wall, poor mouw mouw. The crazy thing about this whole story is, that we would have never even known he had a gaping hole in his belly if Daniel hadn’t seen him licking it! He was walking around for probably three days like that, according to the vet… mewing normally, purring, being his cute self. No abnormal behaviour whatsoever. Crazy cat that he is. The vet said she had never seen a hole so large on a cat before, let alone a cat that calm. While she was in there, she got rid of a bunch of fat as well. Kitty lypo! Next thing, he’ll be wanting a nose job.
So now we have a cone head for a kitty.
His frankenstine like incision. …….
“Hey, what’s the deal here? I can’t reach nothin’!!”
Oh Gus Gus, how we love you. We must. You just cost us 900 big ones.
